Back to School Giveaways

August 5th, 2017 by

It is back to school time and we want to thank everyone who joined us in supporting Shoes of Hope, Webster Elementary’s Back to School Block Party and the 7th Annual School Supply Giveaway at the Hastings Branch Library!

Shoes of Hope

Thank you to Faith Point Ministries and Shinsei Martial Arts for leading this event. The goal is to bring a life-changing message of hope, love, and compassion to everyone. This event not only meets their physical needs with a pair of shoes and socks, but the team spends quality time with the kids asking about their dreams and their lives. It was a great success and we were honored to support this program again for the 3rd year in a row.

Back to School Block Party

The Webster Elementary Back to School Block Party was a great event open to the community. Those who attended had an opportunity for free medical, dental and vision screenings. There was also free haircuts & hair styling included. Bucky Beaver was even there showing off his dance moves to the live music! The Jacksonville Sharks dance team also made an appearance midday to take pictures and sign autographs. We look forward to supporting this great block party event again next year.

School Supply Giveaway

We were also excited to support the 7th Annual School Supply Giveaway at the Hastings Branch Library again this year at the Hastings Town Hall Auditorium. Local children were provided free physicals, blood pressure checks, vision and hearing screenings, and free school supplies! Wow! There was also activities and entertainment for the kids, including the appearance of our own Bucky Beaver!
